Baby Shower

us

Our friends threw us a baby shower earlier this month! The baby’s room theme is Totoro and boy is it nice to have nerdy friends who totally understand us. First off, our friend Anthony designed and put together this amazing diaper cake. I didn’t even know what a diaper cake was and he created this thing of Totoro beauty!!!!

Fire Emblem and Waifus

Never have I ever played a Fire Emblem title before. My husband played Awakening a few years back and loved it. Every day he would tell me which couples got together, which kid got which stats etc… Sounded like a soap opera more than a game.

When Nintendo announced that this year they would release 2 different family lines to the same story, I knew I had to try out the game. My husband walked me through the basics, he explained the leveling and breeding for stats and I caught on pretty quickly. I restarted the game twice because of breeding and stats but it was worth it.

I played Birthright while the husband played Conquest. I really loved playing Birthright – the Hoshido side was so pretty and very Japanese in style and music. Conquest was a bit more European.

I finished the game in about 2 weeks but now there is a 3rd version of the story where you pick neither side. I just bought it and started to play that. Lovely game and art. I am a new fan of the series.

Now I am 35 weeks pregnant and probably won’t be playing as much as we get closer to our little girl’s debut. Capcom announced a new Monster Hunter and Microsoft announced a new Gears of War game. Ah well, not sure how to balance family and gaming yet.
